Peter Zarm Jr.

Peter Zarm Jr., age 81, of Rhinelander died Nov. 5, 2020, at Ascension St. Mary's Hospital, in Rhinelander. He was born on April 3, 1939, in Rhinelander, the son of Peter and Pearl (Rasmussen) Zarm. Peter was a lifelong resident of Rhinelander.

Peter graduated from Rhinelander High School in 1958.

He married Melva Alsteen on Dec. 29, 1958 and they were blessed with 61 years of marriage. Melva preceded him in death earlier this year on Aug. 18.

Peter began his career as a plumber/pipe fitter early in life and it provided him the opportunity to support him and his family until his retirement in 1999. The skills he learned in his daily work made him able to fix most anything in his own home. He enjoyed taking care of his home.

In his spare time Peter enjoyed hunting and fishing, especially deer hunting. He loved traveling with Melva when they could and he looked foreword to his daily devotions with his wife and family. He was a lifelong member of the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Peter is survived by his sons Peter (Lori) Zarm III, Kevin Zarm and Roy Zarm, his sister Karen (Ray "Butch") Scholtes, his brother Richard Zarm, nieces, nephews, other family and friends.

In addition to his wife, he was preceded in death by his daughter Pamela Fish, his sisters Barbara Zarm and Betty Novak and his brother Russell.

Family graveside service will be held at the Forest Home Cemetery. You may leave your private condolences for the Zarm family at

The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is serving the Zarm family.
